Microservices architecture is one of the most modern application development structures today–allowing teams to develop and release new features faster. At DigitalOcean, we have everything you need to run your microservices from powerful VMs, reliable Managed Kubernetes with 99.95% uptime SLA, PaaS code to deployment, Managed Redis, and an evolving Serverless.
DigitalOcean offers the computing power and all the services you need to deploy and scale your application, whether you’re using microservices architecture, a monolithic architecture, or something in between.
Most microservices leverage the ephemeral nature of containerization–and you can too: easily and reliably scale up, down, or sideways with DigitalOcean. Harness the power of effortless Kubernetes to automate your infrastructure in clicks. Our Kubernetes experts are ready to help with fast migration for DigitalOcean Kubernetes customers.
Whether it is scaling of resources, SSL management, multiple programming language support, service monitoring or integrated serverless functions, DigitalOcean App Platform can help you accelerate and simplify your journey to a microservices-based architecture.
NitroPack set up one cluster using a local environment for development featuring over 150 nodes. They use a microservices architecture that automates the delivery of over 120,000 sites with over five million pages—a drastic increase from the 15,000 sites they were servicing in 2020.
Docker is one of the most commonly used softwares for microservices architecture. We make it easy to deploy a virtual machine with Docker CE and Docker Compose pre-installed so you can hit the ground running with your hosting.
Looking to add storage to your cloud infrastructure? DigitalOcean has got you covered.
DigitalOcean’s Spaces is our S3-compatible object storage product with all the advantages you’ll need for object storage, including a Content Delivery Network (CDN), built-in privacy and security options, inbound bandwidth for free, and more!

Our products were designed to be able to support each service instance of your microservice architecture and can meet the needs of microservices architecture pattern best practices, such as:
Supporting multiple service instances (or a single service if that’s what you need)
Respecting service boundaries and service dependencies
Do nothing to inhibit how your services communicate
Running services generally
Following your business rules as it pertains to your chosen operating system, architectural style, and technology stack
Improved service discovery
Same data access across relevant services
We want to enhance the business capabilities of your entire application.
Docker is an incredible software that can make managing each of your service instances (or a specific service instance) easier. With Docker, you can deploy your entire application with one or more containers thus making it easier to manage your services independently. Each service instance can have its own Docker container image thus reducing the risk of your overall microservice architecture and service dependencies.
Docker is a great tool for improving the business capability of each service instance in your microservice architecture. Container images allow for separating of services in your application architecture without getting in the way of complex interactions and processes running across multiple services.
